Ablation of Complex Atrial Flutters

Card Electrophysiol Clin. 2010 Jun;2(2):289-290. doi: 10.1016/j.ccep.2010.01.016.


Atrial flutter is a common arrhythmia that can substantially reduce a patient's quality of life and increase the risk of stroke. Complex atrial flutters can pose a challenge for the invasive electrophysiologist. Catheter ablation of complex atrial flutters is discussed, with several examples provided.
